Creating Christmas

I Have really been in the Christmas spirit lately. I think it is showing in some of my new designs. It has been snowy and cold here in Pa so I am putting forth some holiday spirit and creating.I seem to be really returning to where I first started with my card and doing a lot of hand painted. Some of my very first customers bought my hand painted designs. I am proud of them and hope you all enjoy them as much as I enjoy making them.

Does It Get Any Better?

I have taken some time off to enjoy my family and help take care of my Mom. I wanted to share some pics from our recent beach vacation. We had the best time ever and can't wait to go back next month. Don and Elliot LOVE the ocean and we spent hours on the beach just enjoying the sun and each other.

Sooner Or Later

Well I guess this was bound to happen. Elliot broke the growth plate in his thumb. He is fine thank God! It could have been worse. He is such a good athelete and so strong that I think he forgets to bring it down a bit when he is playing. He can be very extreme and this time he was a bit over the top. He hung himself by his thumb in his basketball hoop. He then decided to go to his friends (they are right behind us ) and seek help from his buddie. He was afraid I would "make him stop playing and come in the house"!! Of course I would have!!
He is doing fine but out of baseball for 3 weeks!! We warned him something "bad" would happen if he kept up with the kind of "tricks " he was trying to do.This is quite a blow for the star pitcher /player. Needless to say his coaches were not happy! This is a lesson in We told you not to do that!!!!
